The first episode of our brand new panel series hosted by Dr Helen Czerski and Robin Ince and presented in association with the Royal Institution. We want to know who inspired the people that inspire us. Each guest will invite the people who formed the ideas that have shaped their work, inspiration, creativity and life. Some may be heroes and, some may be villains, a few may be in-between. They may be alive. They may be dead. They might even be fictional.
Our very special guests in this first episode are the multi award winning naturalist, wildlife presenter and author Steve Backshall and the two time Olympic champion rower Helen Glover.
